This is how I wish my morning was starting today–this, and the time to actually craft and publish a post worthy of you guys. But I’m out at meetings first thing, so I’ll have to catch up later in the day.
See you then.
Folks, there’s something in the air today and it’s telling me to post these images featuring dark interior design. This is something of an assortment; just things that caught my eye with no real rhyme or reason, just that they’re all dark. Enjoy.

Beautiful detailing on this sofa from de Sede.

The celebrity real estate world seems to be in hard-core spin mode this week because Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband have once again listed one of their NYC homes for sale. Apparently, they’ve never actually lived in the property, but purchased and overhauled the townhouse in 2011. I’m not one of those die-hard “Sex and the City” fans–in fact, I’ve only seen a handful of episodes (give me “AbFab” any day over SATC)–but I like SJP in one of my favorite films, “The Family Stone”. But I really like her husband, Matthew Broderick, as the title character in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.
Nerd-y aside here to establish my fan-boy cred: In fact, I still have my Leisure Rules FBDO pin from when I saw the premiere of the movie back in the day:
But on to the townhouse that’s causing such a stir. It’s a very nice home, as you might expect. I’ve chosen a few of the images to share with you.
The living room is contemporary and tasteful, with just the kinds of art and objects you might expect for SJP & Matthew Broderick.
This is the more formal of two dining spaces shown in the listing. The townhouse has seven fireplaces. That dining table is an art piece in and of itself–really more like something Cameron’s dad would have in FBDO, I think.
Here’s the more relaxed eating space–I assume it’s part of the kitchen. I love a round dining table, so this space really appeals to me. Plus, those doors to the outside are very nice.
Finishing up the post with this bedroom and bathroom. While there’s nothing I’ve found to confirm it, I’m assuming these are paired since they share the same design in fireplace surround.
This week’s leftovers start in a forest north of Copenhagen with this terrific black cabin:
Then we’re off to the beach community of Encinitas, California for this lounge-y patio:
Followed by this loft space that seems to be where Scandinavia meets California:
A wonderful mix in this bedroom that includes a cool workspace:
These leftovers end in Madrid, where we find this wonderful masculine apartment:
